Subject: Fun sword-and-sandal beefcake epic
That's how I generally think of these popcorn movies....these Italian-made films are just nonsensical fun.

NOTE: I downlaoded the MPEG2 version and there was nothing wrong with it at all....the ending is complete and is ther, totally intact. Haven't tried the other formats (MPEG2 is what primarily interests me here on the site), but if anyone had an incomplete download, it's likely due to your download connection being cut off for one reason or another, or also possibly because too many were downloading the film at the same time. Try again another time of day and you should get the entire download.

Subject: Son of hercules is KIRK MORRIS
I would like to comment andrefer on the hero of this movie. He is ADRIANO BELLINI ( alias KIRK MORRIS in the peplum Sword and sandal movies0. KIRK is most handsome actor to play the hero is this genre of movies and therefor is entiteled to get the "son of Hercules" award

Subject: Incomplete download - Yippee!
The MPEG 1 download was short as well, but having ploughed through over an hour of this tripe, I was not too disappointed. {edit] The 64kb MPEG4 is complete if anybody wants to see the end. [/edit]

My main gripe is that some scenes just went on and on and on but did nothing to advance the story. Perhaps a half decent editor could have something of the poorly directed nonsense in post production.

The bad guy falls out a window and dies in the end.
Too much wrong with the film to list all.
Just don't watch it.

Unfortunately this interesting example of the genre ends abruptly at a very dramatic moment. The published length is 1:32:10 but both the MPEG4 and MPEG2 versions appear to end at 1:17:44, just as the rhino charges!
